    Great Car For Anyone — The car is overall a great buy. I'm more than happy with it and i can already tell I'll be saving a ton of money without having to stop at the gas station as often. I've had it over 2 weeks and haven't even come close to needing gas

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Great fuel economy on electric and gas. Handles well. Smooth. Good turning radius. BOSE speakers. Great interior. Good looking car as far as electric cars go.

    Cons: Leg room in back

    Great gas mileage

    Cons: lack of cargo space
    small back seat

    Great As A Daily Driver Or Commuter Car! — GM did an amazing job on the fit and finish of this car. Can't beat the fuel savings at the pump and has cutting edge technology in your garage. Would highly recommend this car for anyone that enjoy having a great conversation piece. Well done GM.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Super great for saving gas!!  Drives like a regular car on the highway and feels firmly planted on the road.

    Cons: Only 2 people can sit in the back.

    Love My Volt! — Very economical, comfortable, smooth riding car. I've owned Lexus and Acura and this car is much quieter and smoother than those. Acceleration is awesome, especially in sport mode. Brakes are a bit mushy, but I'm used to driving my Acura. However, I feel super safe in the car and the car is really fun to drive - especially considering that I'm driving around town for next to nothing.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Excellent mileage. I can get to and from work, as well as run my errands, on purely electric, so I'm averaging 230mpg.

    Cons: Backseats are tight. The sound system is still a bit weak, even with the premium Bose system.

    The Cool Car Grandma Drives — Cool,quiet,fuel efficient.We call it our shuttlecraft. It is like driving a spacecraft. When we "start" it, it hums. You really have to listen to hear the hum. People love looking at it and they are amazed it is silent.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: 200 mpg

    Cons: Mother doesn't like to ever use gas. She has become paranoid about using fuel.
